My Story: Rabbit Trails
I first learned about the power of my thoughts while jogging on my favorite wooded trail in Mill Valley. One moment, I’d be moving along at a steady clip, running smoothly and getting the job done. Then, the next moment, I found myself moving at a snail’s pace, unsteady, head down and in deep thought. Sometimes my thoughts were about the past and some painful mishap. I’d find myself replaying the tape of this past event, as if I could somehow change the plot. Most often, though, the thoughts were about the future, and “what if” questions about things that will never happen. I call these fear-based, emotionally charged, anxiety producing thoughts “Rabbit Trails.”

The story is compelling and it has inspired many a runner to take up barefoot running as a practice. But is this a smart idea?
